What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

hello everyone. am a newbie here.

basically i was married to my wife for @14 years. during that time she assualted me once pretty badly causing injury to my right eye and contributed to me getting severe clinical depression.

having lost my job, forced to sell family home and downsize due to my illness, i went on a silly stream of affairs instead of getting out a hopeless relationship.

moving forward to present day, i finally got the courage to separate from her in august 2010. we didnt have a house to share but had house proceeds of 380 which we agreed to split 60:40 and go our separate ways.

she has refused mediation; she has refused solicitor collaboration divorce and now seems intent on the full shooting match. so, my question is, should she have got 70% or should we have split 50:50???

ty for your help in what i am sure will be many questions from me!!!

Hi Robert,
Welcome to wiki, but sorry you need to be here.
It is difficult for anyone to give a view to what the likley split would be without the following information

Your respective ages;

The number of children you have and their ages;

How many nights the children spend with each parent;

The length of your marriage and any period of pre marriage cohabitation;

Your respective incomes;

Your respective outgoings;

Your assets - both soley held and joint;

Your liabilities.

What is the current status regarding your illness?

Take care
